Large 19th C. French Palais Royal Pink Opaline Egg Casket Box
Grand 19th century French Palais Royal pink opaline egg casket box! The unusual large size of this piece makes it quite a statement piece.
This stunning pink opaline glass, egg-shaped box is mounted in an ormolu frame and has decorative ormolu floral and foliage garlands and mounts. Possibly brought back from a Grand Tour for a promised love.
The opaline egg measures approx. 4-1/4" long by 3" wide and is in superb condition. The entire piece measures 7-1/2" tall by 6-1/2" wide and approx. 4-1/2" deep.
This box dates to around 1850 and is in very good condition for its age, no chips, cracks or repairs with a strong clasp fastener.
An outstanding rare French acquisition!
